The Wrap: This Week in Review

File Photo

A look back at a few stories that had Kickin’ Country and the Big Breakfast talking:

  • South Dakota executed its first prisoner Monday night on death row in five years and only the second in more than six decades. Eric Robert pleaded guilty in the April 2011 slaying of prison guard Ron Johnson during a failed escape attempt and asked to be put to death. Johnson’s wife witnessed the execution. Robert died at 10:24 Monday evening.


  • A South Dakota Highway Trooper was injured Wednesday morning as he tried to make a stop after a chase in Sioux Falls just after 2:30 AM. Police Information Officer Sam Clemens says the chase ended on Western Avenue near Interstate 229. The officer, 34-year-old Andrew Steen, is an 8 year veteran of the South Dakota Highway Patrol. Steen underwent a successful surgery early Thursday morning to relieve pressure on his brain. See full story and link to Caring Bridge website to offer support.



  • A collision Tuesday night on East 10th Street in Sioux Falls claimed the life of a 75 year old passenger in a Buick LaSabre. The driver of a Hummer H2 and her 3 children were taken to a local hospital and were treated for minor injuries.


  • Austin Rehkow, a senior at Central Valley High School in Spokane Valley, Washington, was dispatched to do the near-impossible – nail a field goal from 67 yards away. The 67-yard kick is one of the longest in history, beating the NFL record of 63 yards, which is currently held by four players. Watch the video to believe it.
